USPSC Deputy Manager for Coordination

USAID/Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance (BHA)

About the organization

The Response Management Team (RMT) coordinates the USG response to a disaster and serves
as the primary liaison between the field Disaster Assistance Response Teams (DARTs) and
Washington, D.C. The purpose of the RMT is to represent USAID, oversee Washington-based
support, provide interagency coordination of relief activities, coordinate within USAID and with
partners, serve as representatives for relevant USAID stakeholders to other federal officials, the
media and Congress, and support DART field operations. The RMT gathers and analyzes
information from these various sources and evaluates the impact of strategic, political, budgetary,
and other issues on the response. The RMT helps to integrate these issues with the field-level
approach recommended by the DARTs to provide overall strategy recommendations to the BHA
Assistant to the Administrator (AtA). The RMT coordinates with other staff in BHA to
determine the best method to activate and coordinate resources,

Duties

While on an RMT, the DMC leads the Coordination Section and is the RMT’s main point of
contact for strategic coordination and engagement with external stakeholders. The success of a
disaster response will depend on the ability of the DMC to work collaboratively with a broad
array of stakeholders from the humanitarian landscape. The DMC must have a command of
BHA’s mandate and global humanitarian assistance policies and programs. He/She must also
have an understanding of how USAID, the National Security Council, the Department of State,
and other USG departments and agencies function in Washington, D.C. and overseas during a
disaster response. In addition, the DMC must have an advanced level of understanding of the
international humanitarian architecture and be able to provide skilled guidance to interagency
colleagues on working with the UN system, other public international organizations, NGOs, and
donor governments during a response.
